They were talking about this on the radio this morning... this is just sickening and I hope the judge not only throws this out, but fines the parents for wasting the courts time and makes an example out of them - THIS IS WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE WORLD

If you don't make a team, use it as motivation, train harder, practice longer and make the team next time... nothing in life should be handed to you, it should be EARNED.

Really, really, your kid gets cut and you call a lawyer, this is a direct result of the "Everyone gets a trophy" society we live in now.

Guess what folks, the world is not fair, ask the millions of people without jobs, and the ones who can't get jobs because employers are seeking "People Currently Employed"

Friggin' stupid parents, teach your kid to buck up and deal with it, eventually he will need to learn that lesson, and when he does, oh boy will it hurt.

They hurt poor Daniel's dignity, boo friggin' hoo

One of the most famous stories in sports is how at age 14/15 Micheal Jordan got cut from his high school basketball team, he used it to become the best of his era, and if I compared generations maybe the best of all time!

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

It's flat out sickening...

That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger

NOT
That which does not go our way, will be taken to court until it does go our way, weaker and with less resolve

Pathetic.

I'd like to know what attorney actually TOOK this case. It should never have gotten even close to getting to court.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Unbelievable. So I guess if your players suck, you shouldn't cut them because they might cry. Jesus, get over it, it's life. I'm pretty s*** at hockey too, but there are other ways to be involved in the sport besides simply playing it. I mean, haven't you seen that Mastercard commercial with the dude driving the zamboni?

They should just go for the gut and sue the NHL for not drafting the boys last weekend.

HEY!!!! Does this "everyone gets a trophy society" thing mean that the Wings get their names on the Cup this year too? :rolleyes: Close Woodward, Parade today!! :lol: But really, this is becoming way to common in sports. The parents need to stay in the stands and shut up, if your kid(s) suck then encourage them to finish school or find another sport. Like someone else said rinks need zamboni drivers too!!

Maybe the boys should sue their parents for being sh!t bags and for being laughed at at school once their friends find out.

Wow, this is a great example of the entitlement society. Because he tried he should be guaranteed a spot. Wow.

Well, just remember some dumb ***** won Millions from Mickey D's because she was stupid enough to set a hot paper cup of coffee between her legs while driving and for f***s sake it spilled on her crouch. Hopefully the Canadian legal system isn't as f***ed up as the U S courts and they throw this s*** in the crapper where it belongs. The courts need to start charging court cost to s***head Lawyers that file these frivolous lawsuits.

In other news, a large group of Pittsburgh Penguins fans decked in Sidney Crosby sweaters announced a massive lawsuit against the National Hockey League because, despite their best efforts, the Penguins did not win the Stanley Cup. The loss resulted in massive blows to the players dignity and confidence.
